Mike Utley, a former Washington State offensive lineman who suffered a spinal cord injury during an NFL game and was paralyzed, was also named for induction. Florida State's Derrick Brooks and Purdue's Rod Woodson also join this year's class.
The latest group, which will be inducted in December, was announced Friday by the National Football Foundation.
